    Red Hat 9, No Sound from Cds

    I searched and could not find my answer. Okay here we go.

    I bought a computer that had XP on it, removed XP and installed Red Hat 9. Everything was fine until I found the machine now has no sound from any of the CD drives. It plays MP3's and WAVs and other files, but no sound comes from Cd's. I was told that I needed to get a cord for inside that filtered sound to my speakers, but I don't know literally what it is or what to ask for at a computer store. Can anyone help?

    If you open your computer, check if there is a thin wire running from you cd-rom to your soundscart..
    It's usualy gray of color and has black connectors on it.
    If you bought a new PC, it should be there.
    If not, just go to a computer store and ask for an audio connector for the CD-rom player... They know what you mean.

    If it's allready there, run the mixer config to check in the gain on the CD audio isn't muted or at very low settings.
